Help that works



IPA is engaged in transitional and developing countries with
focus on learning and education.

IPA offers help for self-help, e.g. through projects in the fields of food production and water supply as well as the issuance of micro credits.

The unique aspect of the IPA brand is the
integration of youth in the implementation of projects. This gives Swiss students the opportunity to gain formative experiences.

School classes and junior-teams define, plan and execute their projects independently but are supervised by experienced IPA staff.


All projects are inspected by IPA on location, and once completed, are checked over again. This way all donors have the guaranty that their money is being used in exactly the right places and that people are really getting the help they need.

More than 20 youngsters volunteering

group of youngsters kept in Soazza (Switzerland). This year's environmental work assignment was a big success, also in terms of numbers. Is it coincidence or due to the climate debate? Whatever the reason, over twenty young people and two leaders made their way to Soazza in August. The work in the chestnut groves was demanding. The occasional spread ankle was rewarded with a rare sight of a dormouse, besides interesting information about the region and its flora and fauna. The main part, however, consisted in a lot of hard work in favour of Switzerland's biodiversity. The fact that a health centre in Malawi is also benefitting from the great commitment of the young people is a wonderful story for everyone involved.
